"Herbert and the Archduke" 

A film by Arpad Bondy, 43 mins. (1983)
(Original version in German, with Spanish subtitles)

 A film about two unusual men who are known for their long-standing relationship with Majorca. This year the whole island is celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the first: Archduke Ludwig Salvador of Austria and Tuscany, whose name will forever be connected with the north coast of Majorca. He died in 1915. The other is Herbert Schiffl, now over 80, well-known to locals as a man who took his destiny in his hands and moved to the island to start farming in S’Arraco in the seventies - using traditional methods, and living off the land. He has since become famous as a passionate tango dancer. It is Herbert who t
ells the story of the Archduke, in a wonderful film woven together by Arpad Bondy in 1983. It’s a great chance to see S’Arraco – and Herbert – as they were thirty years ago, and some of the properties on the north coast that belonged to the Archduke.  We hope to have Herbert at the screening, as well as the film's director, Arpad Bondy from Berlin.

The restaurant Limón y Chelo will be open from 19.00 p.m. with tapas. - Reservations: 971 235 268 - Free admission.
